History

About This Section
From ancient earthworks to the invention of flying, Southwest Ohio is steeped in history. As a glance at any license plate will tell you, Ohio is "The Birthplace of Aviation," the locale of the Wright brothers' history making invention and the Dayton bicycle shop where they built the first airplane. Here at WVXU, you can learn about the Wright brothers' history and about how it, like that of many other famous Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana natives, is deeply interwoven with the history of the region.
